Rebuilding Day 2020 has been postponed until further notice.
PLEASE SEE LETTER FROM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, JOHN BRACKEN, BELOW FOR REBUILDING DAY 2020 POSTPONEMENT DETAILS:
March 18, 2020
As an organization, Rebuilding TogetherOklahoma City is deeply connected to our community and work every day to improve the safety and health of our neighbors. Rebuilding Together was started under the idea that every person should help their neighbors and give back to their community. Those values remain true today.
During times like these we must continue to care for each other and protect one another, especially our older neighbors. The spread of COVID-19 has made our work more challenging, but we will persevere. Our work remains vital as we help our most vulnerable neighbors. As our healthcare system is under extreme pressure, that work remains significantly important. Long-term, as we face a possible economic downturn, the need for Rebuilding Together’s critical home repair services will be needed more than ever.
In response to state and federal recommendations, and in conjunction with our National Office, we are currently postponing all volunteer work. We appreciate your continued support as we work to strengthen our community during these challenging times. Rebuilding Day 2020, originally scheduled for April 18th, has been postponed, and together we will determine a new date later this year. We are communicating with our neighbors in need to ensure they remain safe during this time. We are continuing basic operations with projects that are in the pipeline utilizing contractors, focusing on outside repairs. Our office remains open, but staff are not conducting home visits at this time. Many of our neighbors are in need of immediate repairs, and thanks to continued support, we are working to meet their needs, while ensuring their safety and that of our staff.
We will continue to monitor the situation and make additional adjustments as necessary.
I remain available via phone at (405) 607-0771 or email at John@RebuildingTogetherOKC.org
Please stay connect via this site and our social media pages for information on rescheduling.
National Rebuilding Month is an annual month-long call to service, culminating with National Rebuilding Day. Throughout April 2019, nearly 1,000 volunteers donated 96,000 hours to complete rebuild projects, including homes, nonprofit facilities and community spaces throughout Oklahoma City.

National Rebuilding Month exemplifies the mission of Rebuilding Together, helping to solve for the urgent need for safe homes and communities for everyone. Recognizing that unsafe or unhealthy living conditions at home account for many of the leading causes of preventable fatality, illness and disability today – this annual effort demonstrates the positive effects of home and neighborhood revitalization on the overall health of homeowners, families and communities.
